                 COMPOUND SUBJECTS AND PREDICATES
In
some sentences, the subject or predicate may be made up of two or more
parts.  These are called ‘compound
parts’.  Using compound parts helps you
combine your ideas.  Notice how compound
parts are formed.
Compound
Subjects:
   Debra delivers newspapers
after work.
                                    Roger delivers newspapers after work.
                                   Debra and Roger deliver newspapers
after work.
Compound
Predicates:
The soldiers loaded their jeep.
                                   The soldiers headed for the border.
                                   The soldiers loaded their jeep and headed
for the border.
The conjunctions ‘and’ and ‘or’ are used to join
compound parts.  When three or more
subjects or predicates are combined, use comma to separate them.
                                      Examples: 
Orange, apples, and bananas filled a bowl on the table.
